Dorset Council and partners want to hear from young people with Special Educational Needs or Disabilities and their parents and carers.

Complete the survey and you can be in a prize draw for National Trust membership.

The survey will be available until 31 March and the results will be published on Dorset’s SEND Local Offer webpage (personal details and names will be withheld). If you need a hard copy of the survey, would like it in a different language, or need help completing it then please contact your key worker or email Kim Saint (

Cllr Andrew Parry, Dorset Council Portfolio Holder for Children, Education and Early Years, said: “We want to hear from parents, carers and young people to gather your views and experiences of the services and provision in Dorset for children and young people aged 0 – 25 years with additional needs.

“Your feedback is important. The information you provide will go towards updating the Dorset Special Educational Needs and Disability Strategy and help us to continue our improvement work.”

Elaine Okopski, Participation Co-ordinator for Dorset Parent Carer Council, said: “We are really pleased to have worked with Dorset Council on this survey. It is a great opportunity for all parents, carers and young people with SEND to share their experience of local services, and to have a voice in shaping services and provision locally, so all children and young people with SEND have the best possible outcomes. Please do take part, your voice really matters.”
